About this scholarship

About this scholarship

Pacific Medical Training invites eligible students to apply for the ACLS Scholarship for Healthcare Providers which aims to support students in their studies, complete medical school and get a head start on their career.

Submissions will be a 750 to 1,000 word essay discussing emergency medical care from the perspective of a medical student. Basic life support is a critical skill for all healthcare providers and advanced and pediatric life support are also practiced by certain nurses and physicians depending on where they are working. Applications should explain how they will prepare mentally and physically before performing life saving techniques on patients in your career. Working as a healthcare provider can be a stressful and rewarding career. And we are looking for your insight and advice for other students entering the field.

Essays will be judged based on helpfulness and sincerity, technical ACLS acumen is necessary in life but not for this essay.
